I am getting ready to cast on for the Shipwreck Shawl! I have tried Emily Ocker’s cast on with semi success (you only cast on 9 stitches.) After I get it cast on, knitting the first round and then knitting the second (k1, yo repeat)is where the trouble kicks in.
So I guess I have two questions…
1 Does anyone recommend a better/easier cast on for this?
- Any tips for keeping such a small # of stitches neat on the needles until it grows?
